The Cooperative Bank have noticed that those earning between £20,000 and £25,000 are more likely than average to support investment in green energy even if it adds to the cost of household bills, a new survey has suggested. 63% of those in the earnings bracket think that it is still important to tackle climate change through such measures, even in the face of a cost-of-living crisis. It is clear that climate change is a major concern for UK consumers and a concern that the bank shares. Climate change was the most urgent social and environmental issue for consumers in the UK, ahead of poverty and food insecurity. In total 61% said that addressing climate change is one of the most important issues facing the country. The support for that statement increased to 68% when counting only those aged between 18 and 34.
